Free Bandstand Concerts Are Back in Swindon


Concerts at the Town Gardens Bandstand and in Queen’s Park are back by popular demand and they’re kicking off this Sunday May 1st with an extra special launch concert from the North Swindon Big Band in the Town Gardens Bowl.

Following the success of the line-up in 2021, South Swindon Parish Council are delighted to announce the return of this much-loved fixture of the summer events season in two of their beautiful public parks, Town Gardens and Queen’s Park, and the whole community is invited to experience outstanding live music in the open air.

These concerts are completely free, so members of the public can just turn up on the day.  Performances start at 3pm and finish at 4.30pm.

The season of free Sunday afternoon concerts complements South Swindon Parish Council’s recently launched season of theatre and music events at the Town Gardens Bowl, which is set to include live music from the incredible Opera Sulis and Voodoo Room, as well as the return of the hugely popular My Dad’s Bigger Than Your Dad Festival.
